More great sailing conditions of 15 knots or more and another great turnout for Dublin Bay Sailing Club's Citroen South Dublin Turkey Shoot as it passed the halfway stage of the series in yesterday's fourth race off Dun Laoghaire.

With race start times from 10 am, some (black sail) boats are on the race track from 8. 30 am such is the level of competition now generated for the popular series.

With four separate starts for the 75-boat fleet and some keen jostling for the pin end, Race Officer Henry Leonard got the fleets away promptly for three rounds of a course that featured a near one-kilometre beat, a gybe mark, and a downwind to the West Pier Outfall mark before a finish off that pier's lighthouse.

Mixed sportboats

A great turnout of mixed sportsboats saw a keenly contested start with the 1720 Wolfe, full of Royal St. George One design talent, including Neil Hegarty, Peter Bowring, Bill Nolan and John O'Connor, winning the pin end battle.

As well as 1720s, there are several J70s and J80s competing, including one of the Royal St. George's newly refurbished J80 fleet.

Big J109 turnout

In the fourth start of the day, a great mix of cruisers zero and one came to the line to challenge any summer turnout. The Grand Soleil 34 debutante JustTina was out again as was the Farr 42 Wow. Both Sunfast 3600s were on the line, as was the former Turkey Shoot winner Mermaid, a Beneteau 50, and the top DBSC J97 Windjammer too, but the most popular type was the J109 that made up six of the sixteen-boat fleet.

It was nip and tuck, right off the line for the two top J109s in the country and when White Mischief (Tim Goodbody) and Juggerknot (Andrew Algeo) split tacks halfway up the first beat there was only a boat length between them. White Mischief rounded first and looked to gain initially downwind but the intriguing dogfight was shortlived because White Mischief was diverted to come to the rescue of a Man overboard.

DBSC organisers have published the handicaps and start sequences for next Sunday's third race in the Citroen sponsored Turkey Shoot Series on Dublin Bay.

Download the handicaps and starts below.

As Afloat.ie previously reported, after a shifty race two, Bay newcomer Hot Cookie, a Sunfast 3600, that had North Sails Tactician Maurice O'Connell onboard last weekend, has moved into the overall lead but only by a single point.

DBSC has produced a fine turnout of up to 75 boats for the pre-Christmas series and it has secured a buoyant collection of weekly sponsors too with Drumshanbo Gunpowder Gin, North Sails, UK Sailmakers Ireland and Viking Marine all involved.

Chris Johnston's Beneteau 31.7 has won Dublin Bay Sailing Club's Newsom Cup for the best one-design boat in the club's 2018 Summer sailing season. It is one of six premier awards to be made by the club at the end of a hectic Sherry Fitzgerald sponsored season. The Waterhouse Shield was won by Richard and Philip Lovegrove's Sigma 33 Rupert for the best cruiser on handicap.

DBSC Commodore Chris Moore will salute the club's 213 trophy winners at what will certainly be a gala prizegiving on Friday evening at the Royal St. George clubhouse that will also be Donal O'Sullivan's last as Master of Ceremonies. The Honorary Secretary is stepping down at the end of the month after 27 years in the role.

In other premier awards announced, Dun Laoghaire Harbour Trophy for the best newcomer was awarded to John O'Gorman's new Sunfast 3600 Hot Cookie.

The Dr Alf Delany Cup was won by Fireballer Frank Miller in Blind Squirrel for the best boat on the dinghy course. 

The Beneteau 31.7 Bluefin II (Michael and Bernie Bryson) was the winner of the Brendan Ebrill Memorial Cup. DBSC Race officer Suzanne McGarry was awarded the Viking Trophy for her notable contribution to sailing. 

On November 26th, the club's AGM bears witness to a changing of the DBSC Guard when Donal officially steps down. Interestingly, it is the outgoing Commodore Chris Moore who will fill his shoes. Moore, over a nine-year period, has also served as rear and vice commodore. The AGM will elect a new Commodore Jonathan Nicholson, Vice Commodore Ann Kirwan and a new Rear Commodore Eddie Totterdell. Before that, however, it will be a busy wind-down for Donal with DBSC's annual gala prizegiving this Friday.

This weekend's DBSC Winter sailing fixture will remember club members who died in the conflict of World War One with a brief ceremony before the start of 'Turkey Shoot' racing this Sunday afternoon. The club's Honorary Secretary Donal O'Sullivan relates the story of sailing in Dublin Bay in 1914.

During the First World War, the naval authorities banned sailing in Dublin Bay. The reason given by Admiral Le Marchant to the flag officers of the Dun Laoghaire (then Kingstown) clubs was “that the presence of many boats who would have to be kept under observation every time they entered and left the harbour would be an inconvenience to his officers. 

Not stated was a likely reason why this observation might be deemed necessary – a number of prominent yachtsmen had been involved in landing the arms for use by the by the Irish volunteers. Besides Erskine Childers, there had been Conor O’Brien, whose bust graces the vestibule of the Royal Irish Yacht Club, and Sir Thomas Myles, former president of the Royal College of Surgeons, honorary surgeon in Ireland to King George V and member of the Royal St. George Yacht Club and the Royal Irish Yacht Club.

But it was a time of conflicted loyalties. A large group of the DBSC membership (sixty-eight) volunteered for service in the British forces. Eight were killed in action. These included the Club’s Commodore, Viscount Crichton, M.V. O, and D.S.O. who died in the early stages of the war. The list reads as follows: W.P. Bridge (corporal Royal Dublin Fusiliers), J.E. Burke (Lieutenant, Royal Dublin Fusiliers), R.B Clegg, Viscount Crichton (Major, Royal Horse Guards), Herbert S. Findlater (corporal, Royal Dublin Fusiliers), F.A. Marrable (Royal Dublin Fusiliers), Harry North and E.T. Weatherell (Lieutenant, Royal Dublin Fusiliers).

On Sunday, 11th November many in Ireland will be remembering the deaths of family members in the war. In the afternoon DBSC will remember its own members who died in the conflict with a brief ceremony before the start of Turkey Shoot racing.

The procedure on Sunday is as follows:
Sound Signal. Reading from the committee vessel of the names of DBSC members killed in action during the First World War. Sound Signal and flags lowered. One minute silence. Sound signal. Flags raised.
Competitors are asked to observe the minute’s silence.

The start sequence for this Sunday's second DBSC Turkey Shoot race will repeat the starts of last week's opening race that was won by the RIYC J109 White Mischief. Results here

 A great Turkey Shoot turnout out of 65 boats from an entry of 75 is a major boost for winter sailing on Dublin Bay.

Handicaps and starts for the second race sponsored by Citroen are downloadable below with a reminder that due to World War One centenary commemorations the first start is 1410 this Sunday.

The DMYC Dinghy Frostbite series will be in progress in the harbour with a first gun 13.57. There are 91 entries in the dinghy event, so the harbour will be busy from about 1.30 onward. Turkey Shoot yachts heading to the bay are asked to keep clear of the dinghy race course.

Tim and Richard Goodbody's potent J109 White Mischief leads after the first race of seven in the DBSC Turkey Shoot on Dublin Bay last Sunday.

A bumper turnout of 61 boats from 74–entries received to date is a shot in the arm for sailing in the capital's waters this winter.

A light air start to the series saw the Royal Irish Yacht Club entry come in ahead of clubmate Andrew Alego's Juggerknot, the current J109 National Champion.

Goodbody's White Mischief was helmed by Maurice O'Connell of North Sails Ireland.

Third overall is another RIYC boat, Leslie Parnell's Beneteau 34.7 Black Velvet. 

The fleet includes a great turnout of 1720 sportsboats from across the Dun Laoghaire waterfront and includes a new Grand Soleil model Justina that finished 25th in her debut race.

With two days to go to the DBSC Turkey Shoot on Dublin Bay, organisers have issued Sailing Instructions (and an amendment) for the seven race series. 

Download the Sailing Instructions below

Start sequences for Sunday's first race in the Citroen sponsored handicap series are expected to be issued later today as late entries continue to be received for the much-anticipated bumper series.

Writing in the Irish Times Sailing Column this morning, David O'Brien predicts that Colin Byrne's XP33 'Bon Exemple' will be the winner of the top performing cruiser-racer in the country's biggest racing fleet this season. Dublin Bay Sailing Club has yet to announce its six premier awards for its gala prizegiving in a fortnight's time but front-runners are already clear from the summer season's results.

This morning's sailing column also reveals how outgoing Commodore Chris Moore is to fill the shoes of the DBSC Hon Sec Donal O'Sullivan who retires after 27 years in the role.
